Ramen used to be what we'd eat when we couldn't afford hamburgers.

Those are something completely different then fresh ramen. I wish they would call it something else in the packages as they are nothing like fresh remotely.

This doesn't look like an improvement on the bun to me... But of course I would be willing to try it!

Yeah, that's the spirit!

Personally, I think the noodle-bun is much more tempting than the pretzel bun that some places are promoting currently. To me those are too tough to bite into, and too chewy, detracting from the juicy loveliness of a nice burger. But the thin crispy crust and tender insides of the noodle-bun seem like a welcome bonus.

Chef Keizo says that his two favorite foods are ramen noodles and hamburgers, and he wanted to find a way to combine them. I think what he came up with was a stroke of genius.

I've never used ramen as a burger bun, but I've fried plenty of ramen up crisp and brown into a patty and topped it with some Chinese lamb, green onion, and fresh ginger that looks similar to spaghetti sauce (can't remember what it is called), or even with just some stir fried veggies.

By the way, I think a ramen "bun" sounds a lot better than the burger served on a donut.

Love me some well made ramen. With all the rain were getting this week might make a trip to get me one.

Where is it in the Bay Area? That's my "hood"
